"The cause of the fire was not immediately determined but was initially linked to a possible failure of a pump seal, according to broadcast reports. The fire was apparently confined to a gasoline storage tank."

I guess we can get ready for another ga$ increase:

I know this wont have an effect here but it may spike a 2 cent increase in pump prices in California. Considering California is paying the highest price for gas in the US at about 2.30 a gallon or so compared to about 1.80 here, it shouldn't matter much, what's two cent's more.


Really though, these small problems added together are really starting to affect the ole' pocketbook. China (not such a small problem) using more oil, production in the gulf slowed by mother nature, refinery fires, Iraq, other governments' problems, blah blah...

I know we still have cheaper gas than most places on earth but it is really starting to hit home. Welcome to the real world I suppose!

I think it'll reach 75.00. I dont think it will be long before it's 3.00. That's life in the big city. I drove 280 miles on calls yesterday. Passed it along to the customer.
